A day in the life...

It's been a while since I have done a "day in the life" post. They are always so much work but I love going back and reading how my days have changed...the days are long but the years are short, right??!!? 

This was my Tuesday....Sloane woke early and she is usually the first one up. She woke a little before 6am. She loves snuggling on the couch with me and her iPad before starting her day. We leave the lights off and she doesn't usually say much. (Note: this is pretty much the only part of the day she isn't talking) Also yes, she has on headphones. We got Wyatt and Sloane a good pair for vacation and she doesn't like to watch the ipad without them now. LOL! Sloane gets very little milk throughout the day but she does ask for a cup each morning so I got that for her and snuggled in...

By 6:16 both of the kids are awake and there my snuggles are over. I begin preparing for the day. I start to get myself ready, make beds, and get the kids clothes laid out...I get Wyatt his instant breakfast (it's what he drinks every morning) and turn the tv on for him. He needs a few long time before he is actually awake. Mark and I joke he is totally going to be that old man with coffee and a newspaper for a solid hour before he starts his day. He asks to be woken early so he has time to "wake up" instead of getting a few extra mins. of shut eye.

*I am aware the kids can make their own beds and sometimes they do. Right now it's easier for me to do and part of my routine so no judging please. ;)
The kids and I are ready for school and out the door...Wyatt is tardy at 7:25 so good thing we live close. We left at 7am the first week of's obvious it's now been almost a month since school started. I hate to think what May will look like. ;/ Wyatt eats a few bites of a Cliff Bar on the way to school as well. He has determined his instant breakfast doesn't keep him full until snack time.

It's Tuesday so Wyatt has to wear his P.E. clothes. Yes, they have to dress out even in Kindergarten. It's nice though because they get to start in their P.E. clothes then only have to change once instead of twice. (Bless the little Kindergarten teachers heart right!?!?) I love this picture. It totally sums both of their personalities up. Mark gets to go to work a little later on Tuesday/Thursday mornings so Sloane usually stays with him but she decided this morning to ride along with me. ;)

Drop off complete and now headed to grab a few items at the grocery...

By 8:30 Sis and I are home and unloading our groceries. We had to make a stop for Diet Coke as well. FYI One is for Mark...Sloane didn't get one. Ha ha! We didn't need much but a restock on our fruits and veggies and a few items for dinner. We cut and peeled everything and stored them away...Sis had to grab a few snacks first. ;) 
After unloading and putting away I made Mark and I breakfast....

and then we made a quick trip to the neck has been hurting me the past few days so I needed some help. Good thing I am married to a Chiropractor right!?!?

After the office we ran to Target for a few things before heading back to the house. I moved some laundry, made Mark's lunch, got together some things I needed to take to Wyatt's school, put together after school snacks and emptied the dishwasher.

Wyatt goes to school half day. Sis and I got to school a little earlier so what were we to do but play with some snap chat filters!?!? LOL!!!

The best part of the day!!!! 

After school we went over to some friends house that moved over the summer. They are trying to get settled and we went to help with a few things. The kids played outside for a long time before coming back inside. We left there in time to get home and changed for Sis's first night back to dance since summer break. She was SOOOO excited!! They have a fun little set up for mom's (and dad's) to take pictures of the first night! It was so cute!! Wyatt decided to hang out with Maw Maw during dance and that's never a problem. We can drop him off on our way so it's perfect!

After dance we picked up Wyatt and went home. We went through backpacks and did homework. Wyatt is doing really well and finally starting to get the hang of this school thing! Don't get me wrong there is room for improvement but it's not as bad as I thought!?!? Funny, how that works right?!?!?

After homework I made the kids dinner (turkey and cheese sandwiches, strawberries, and carrots) and they took showers. (On Tuesday and Thursday I have to serve dinner in 2 rounds because Mark gets home late.) We have been playing LOTS of UNO at our house lately and they are LOVING it! Wyatt played 1 round and watched a show on the ipad while Sis and I played the second round.

I turned Mark and I's dinner down so it was ready when he got home. Wyatt and Sloane prepared their bedrooms for bed and brushed their teeth. It was about 7pm. 

And just like that...a little after 7pm my house was silent...

I cleaned up the bathroom from their teeth brushing...I mean am I the only one with kids who seem to leave the bathroom crazy messes after brushing their teeth!?!?! I knew I had a little bit before Mark got home so I moved the laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, made Mark's lunch for Wednesday, and set the table...

Just as I sat down and got out my computer he takes him about 15 mins to get home so that's usually when I get the food out/warm. If it's a crockpot dinner I get it out so it's actually edible (and not still on fire) by the time he gets home. LOL! We ate dinner around 8pm. We cleaned up the dishes and were ready to watch some shows by 8:30 or so....

Phew, what a day!!! Thanks for making it to the end of the day with me. LOL!!! You can read a few other Day in the Life posts below:
